The new GAA GRMA card
The GAA has announced details of a new GAA Membership Card and rewards programme entitled grma or ‘go raibh maith agat’, a thank you to the GAA's members for their involvement in GAA clubs, engagement in GAA activities and attendance at games.
Members are being asked to sign up online via gaa.ie/grma and will receive a new official GAA Membership Card personalised with their name, club and GAA Membership Number.
The grma rewards programme will also be available from January and will provide GAA Members with access to exclusive discounts, special offers and the opportunity to earn points for going to games.
Points can be redeemed by individual members or pooled for redemption by GAA clubs.
Speaking at the launch at Croke Park, GAA President Aogán Ó Fearghail said “So much of what we do as an Association is made possible by the fact that we have such a loyal following of supporters all over Ireland.
“This new rewards programme will offer us the chance to extend a thank you to them in recognition of that support for the commitment they show be it at club level in their community, or in supporting our Games.
“Being a GAA Club Member is for many of us a way of life. But I welcome the fact that this programme will also add extra value to that commitment. I’ve no doubt that people will also be interested in signing up to receive a Membership Card.”
Membership Cards will only be distributed to members who have signed up to grma online. The programme is available to GAA Members who are over 18. Membership Cards are only issued to GAA Club Members who have renewed their subscriptions.
In the New Year, phase two of the programme will be launched. This will enable GAA supporters and match-goers to register and earn points through the grma programme. International GAA Clubs will also be catered for in the New Year.
